Oh Boy Records, started by the late John Prine, announces their “Oh Boy Goes to Europe” UK and EU Tour. The tour will feature Arlo McKinley, Emily Scott Robinson and Kelsey Waldon. They will stop in London, Manchester, Glasgow, Dublin, Hamburg and Amsterdam between June 14th and 22nd and see John’s wife Fiona Prine host select evenings. All three artists will perform new music – each night concluding with a group performance of a John Prine classic. The Hamburg date will also see an additional performance from Oh Boy’s longest-signed artist Dan Reeder.
Singer-songwriter Arlo McKinley arrives in the UK for the first time to perform songs from his critically acclaimed album ‘Die Midwestern‘ and unveil new songs from a soon-to-be-announced record. Also joining the tour is Kentucky songwriter Kelsey Waldon, who previously toured in Europe with John Prine and is currently recording with Shooter Jennings for a brand-new record this summer. Waldon will perform tracks from her well-received Oh Boy Records debut album ‘White Noise/White Lines‘. Colorado songwriter Emily Scott Robinson will be performing songs from her critically acclaimed first album with Oh Boy Records, ‘American Siren‘. The Hamburg date will offer a rare performance from their longest signed artist, Dan Reeder, who will perform a selection of music from his four On Boy released records.

Emily Scott Robinson. You have just sung my soul, I am crying as I write this. The piano was all it needed, anything else would have been superfluous. If your lyrics are from personal experience, you have presented us with a perfect interpretation of how thousands, possibly millions, of people look back on their life, relationships, marriage. Then look forward and hope for a better life experience for their children.
You have been gifted with a voice, vocal instrument, that I can only admire and wish for.Do the world a big favour: dont ever stop singing. Thank you.
